3 USB Modem security query

I'm just looking for some reassurance really. We recently bought a 3 USB Modem(Huawei E220 HSDPA) and are concerned about others being able to use the connection without our knowledge. Is it possible for Wi-Fi users and the like to steal our download allowance? This is probably a no-brainer, but I am next to useless when it comes to this sort of thing! Thanks for any replies!

Dont worry. Cant happen as the modem is really a cut down mobile phone and it has its own serial number and address etc.
